My mostly stock forester. Just finished painted the front bumper (not wet sanded, buffed of waxed yet). Blacked out the stock grill. Took off the roof rack (keeping it for my kayak) Also finished the rims paint a few days ago as well. I repainted the rear bumper as well. Tell me what you think.










Can't tell I backed it into a pole. I think I did a good job fixing that.

Was really hoping for a reply.... Got alot of hours into this car in paint projects. I completely repaint both the front and rear bumper (front looks darker cause its not buffed out and is still a bit rough). Lots of work in the rims and grill. Took off the roof rack.

Please give me something!

BTW here is a better pic of my exhaust before bumper was painted. Note the damage and lots of touch up paint to cover.

Im no painter but Id say you did a really good job, cant really tell you abcked into a pole. th erims are nice, i want to paint my steelies as well but i think im going flat black or a matte finish. Nice work man, nothing like the feeling you get from knowing you fixed it yourself. :)

Looks good. At first I thought the car was an XS model with the two tone lower cladding (Canadians still got the two-tone XS model in 07-08 & our X's still got the black lower cladding). If you say it hasn't been buffed out yet and will match the rear that you have done, then bravo for a job well done.

The wheels also look great, the polished edge make it look like those expensive two piece rims from a distance. By the way what make are the mudflaps?

I'm leaning towards an install a pair of these Black, Ultra Compact Air Horns - Griot's Garage maybe even the truck horns, scroll down on that page to listen to the horns.

Ok, so a while back I had a FlowMaster installed after my factory resonator split apart. Had a hack weld in some resonators to tone it down. Well the hacks job failed and leaked badly only after a month. Had my friend (the one who originally installed the FlowMaster muffler) redo the whole system. Nice mellow deep tone, very happy with it. No drone on highway as you can't really hear it once up to speed, but you hear it during acceleration in city driving. This is a FlowMaster 40 series. Here are the finished results!


Picture of my tip






There is 2 pieces welding in here because the joint shifted during welding and cause the system not to fit idealy. So it was recut and another piece welded in. The fitment in absolutely perfect now.


Instead of using reducer my friend did a nice puddle weld.


older pic installed on the car before resonator were installed.



BTW yes im a messy worker. I have a bad habbit of throwing stuff every witch way.
